"Nothing will even happen until you push the buttion."
—Tedd to Sarah[1]

History[edit | edit source]

The watches[2] that Tedd uses in his experiments with magic and mad science are supposed to be toy watches for prizes at arcades and he buys them in bulk[3].

They function in the same way wands do. In the words of Tedd, "[T]hat watch is like a wand.  It doesn't need much [magic energy to work]."[4] In effect, Tedd "programs" the watch to perform a spell (using the glove)[3][5], and the user may then use the watch to cast the spell at will.

It appears that watches can currently only cast transformation enchantment spells, and only on the person wearing them.

Also, they actually only work in a high-magic area around Moperville[6] - spell catalysts that small don't store enough energy so without ambient energy normal people wouldn't have enough magic to use them.[7]

Differences from the transformation guns[edit | edit source]

Tedd said that he can put any of the TF gun forms and more into a watch.[8] Before the the magic change there were two important differences between the TF gun and watches: the TF guns couldn't change clothes, and watches didn't work on Grace.[9] This was because the watches use human magic, which Grace could not use[10], while the TF guns use uryuom magic[11] ... which could mean that after the magic change either or both changed just like the fact that Grace can now change clothes[12] using human magic,[13] although neither was confirmed in-canon yet.

Note that while Tedd can put any of the forms into watch, it doesn't mean he actually did. It's likely that loading TF gun with form is simpler than loading watches, and only Tedd (well, only seer) can program the watches[14] while anyone can program the TF gun - Grace was shown changing the parameters.[15]

Known Spells[edit | edit source]

Spells shown in canon[edit | edit source]

This is a list of the spells we have currently seen a watch perform:

  • Lengthen Hair[16]
  • Shorten Hair[17]
  • Clone Forms
    • Grace[18][19] (six different versions are shown[20], but only one is actually used)
    • Tedd[21] (it is mentioned that there are several variants[22] but only one is shown)
    • Susan[23] (six variants in three different heights, although only two are actually shown)[24][25]
  • Humanoid cat alias catgirl forms, both furry[26] and non-furry.[27]
  • Dynamic height change.[28] This spell can change the height of the user, including clothes, in any way the user imagines (within general size change limit of Tedd's technology, meaning that the total volume cannot change more than a factor 2, or 79.39% to 125.99% in size change[29]). The problem is that the imagination must be extremely specific, and the effect is slightly different on clothes, which often results in wardrobe malfunction.[30] As shown on Nanase. There is, however, safety limit preventing the clothes becoming dangerously tight and/or tear.[31]

Promised/Mentioned Spells[edit | edit source]

This is a list of spells Tedd has mentioned he can (or has) put in a watch, but which we haven't actually seen used.

  • Fixed height change
    • Not directly shown, but they were compared to the dynamic ones.[32] They can change the height of the user by one or two inches in either direction.
  • Four breasts[33], shown in a sketchbook image[34]
  • Half size, double size, hair color, hair style, any male or female variant, various...things made larger or smaller, four breasts, cat, dog, bunny, squirrel, cow, Jeremy, heavier, thinner, muscular, race, age, libido, bisexuality, webbed toes, webbed hands ...[35]
  • Clothing morphs[36] ... we sort of saw this, as multiple other watches (including the size ones or the Grace one) transform clothes, but we never saw presumably existing watches which change JUST clothes. Closest we got was probably change-to-girl-and-longer-hair[37] or non-canon Scooby Doo reference[38].
